Default Busted Bike Path

There's a bike path running along the entrance / perimeter of the sewage treatment plant out on Columbia Blvd. The path is quite handy for connecting N. Portland neighborhoods with the Columbia River region. The path used to cross the railroad tracks with a superb crossing. About a year ago they busted the tracks up, barred the crossing and it's never been fixed!

It's not a show-stopper as cyclists may opt for the gravel strewn pavement and muddy adjacent lawn as a bypass. Problem is, why is the appropriate crossing still in disrepair? I emailed our mayor to see if he has any connections that might expedite fixing it. I could see a month or so, but nearly a year? It appears they've shelved it and figured cyclists can just go to hell. Who's responsible for maintaining that path?
